Whitgift's annual Careers Convention

Whitgift's annual Careers Convention

The annual Whitgift Careers Convention took place on Tuesday 15 November 2022 with approximately 400 Fifth Form and Lower Sixth Form students in attendance.

Advisers from a wide range of vocations came to Whitgift to share their experiences and expertise with the students, give practical, impartial advice and answer any questions. Students benefited from twenty talks from a variety of companies including Amazon, Sony, and Morgan Stanley covering a range of careers including Law, Finance, Medicine, Technology, Science, Sports and the Arts & Media.

82 advisers attended, including Old Whitgiftians and parents, with one adviser commenting, “[they were] the most levelheaded set of boys I have met during my time as an advisor. Good questions and clear interest in the business area I represented.” Another adviser explained, “The boys are such a credit to the school. Each one I spoke to was so polite, engaged and a pleasure to speak to. I would happily have any of them as a work colleague!”

The School would like to thank all the advisers for giving up their time to help support students during this annual event.
